初一

初一

red and gold diamond marks the door
word standing on its head
fortune has arrived

mandarins in hand
fragrant, wrinkled gifts
prosperity in pulp

blessings on tongues
good grades, more money
give me grandchildren

cymbals clang and lions leap
men sweaty beneath costumes
dancing to feed their families

we bathe in colour and noise
laughing and clapping, imbibing festive cheer
wearing new clothes, old paper faces

2011

New year, new projects, new ways to clog the Internet’s arteries.

I wanted to see my words on something other than the white and grey of word processors, and now I will.

Happy New Year, everyone.
